Alrighty . . . it sounds like Janene is in a perfect snit today, right? RIGHT!
WARNING: SOME POLITICAL DISCUSSION FOLLOWS. IF YOU ARE GOING TO GET MAD ABOUT IT, DON'T BOTHER READING ANY FURTHER. Thank you
I cannot believe all the drama, controversy, and problems occurring each and every single day. I am almost afraid to talk about anything political because, unfortunately, that has become a sore subject with a lot of people. But I AM going to express some of my own thoughts.
In the last 24 hours, some political figures and others have been shot down by a crazy person who despises how our government is being run. Mr. Trump is officially under investigation for attempting to obstruct justice. Some of our congressmen and women are hiding out in some backroom preparing a "dead in the water" health plan which will help no one but billionaires, who will receive huge tax cuts and leave the majority of our country without a definitive plan for affordable healthcare. A wonderful young man is returned to his family from North Korea, in a coma. Evidently, he was tortured or mistreated in such a horrendous fashion that he has been in this state for approximately 15 months! What kind of animal would do such a thing to another human being? I just don't get it.
Then there is the terrible fire in that 24-story apartment building in London. When I read that people were dropping their babies out windows in the hope that someone would catch them, and that they would survive, is heartbreaking. The world has become a madhouse. Everywhere we look, there is sadness and danger and fear. When did the world get so incredibly sucky?
I know I have no answers. But I know this. I want normal back. I want our government to get busy and actually start running again. I want our political leaders to quit fighting each other and actually accomplish something other than creating chaos. Nothing is getting done. And now, congress is getting ready for their summer shut-down. Wha . . .? I can't imagine what a lot of these people will do when they return home to meet with their constituents. Will they refuse to answer their phones, or avoid home-town meetings to talk with their voters. Will they hide in the bushes, or stand on roof tops, looking down at angry mobs who disagree with so much that is going on in our government? THEY WORK FOR US! Where is it written that they will decide to do things that the majority of the country disagrees with? Come on! This is not a dictatorship. We pay these guys handsomely, and they are doing so much to bring our country down. What are they afraid of? Or WHO are they afraid of? We have slipped way down on the "most-powerful,-respected-country" food chain list. It is going to take years to earn back the respect that America had a few months ago.
THUMP! Again, that is me jumping down from my soapbox. Enough said for now.
But I still feel like pulling my hair out!
One happy note: I found 48 cents in the dryer when doing the laundry.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
